I've always tried to "teach" employees to always remember;

a persons perception is their reality

That's good! I'm going to use that at the boring obligatory Wednesday managers meeting during the round table.

I think the only one that's more-or-less specific to rock and roll is #10. I have not felt obliged to destroy myself physically in most work settings (unless you count the requirement to eat cake at birthday parties, which are scheduled approximately every 4 hours in my office).

OMG--I hate THOSE...what a pain. Avoid them like the plague. I don't have anything against sweets, but more or less parcel out what amt I am going to indulge in and would prefer they be of my own selection, and not some second rate cake from Safeway or what have you...

"...every four hrs..." whoaaa...I thought once every month or two was bad enough! Thank gawd my group has more or less given it up (too big, too impersonal, etc.).

Do I sound like an anti-social snob? Put me down for one, please.

Well, every 4 hours is a bit of an exaggeration, but yeah, they can really throw a diet off the rails. My office seems to have a cluster of August/September birthdays and they seem constant.

A person's perception is their reality, or Hunter's Commandments? I'm trying to picture Hunter's Commandments at a management meeting. Complete with a white board and a PowerPoint, perhaps?

The persons perception, although I am odd enough to probably get by with Hunter's commandments also. Every week we have to give a "did you know". It can be about anything, mine is usually Dead related to the point of all the others rolling their eyes. It can't all be serious, there has to be some break in all the corperate pushes.
By the way, I work for a grocery retailer. Sometimes they make it feel like you are working for Fort Knox. I come home sometimes and my wife says "Honey, relax. You sell groceries."
She's the smart one.
